Weight Loss part 1....

 I love to exercise! One of my favorite things is Zumba. I lost weight between pregnancies attending those classes. It's a fun dance class that tricks you into working out. I LOVE walking, I LOVE a classes that are cardio and strength training mixed and I really LOVE Pilate's classes too. I also LOVE to eat especially when I am stressed out. After I had Lily, our life was crazy. Pete was laid off and then took a  job in another state. I had the kids during the week while we waited on our home to sale which took 5 months. My neighbor for 6 years was and still is one of my best buddies. Our kids played together, we were members at the same church, scrapbooked together and exercised off and on together too. But in 2010 we decided to get serious about it.

                                Here's a pic of us in Spring of 2010. Here's a shot of a group of us..

Here's a recent pic!! Look at the changes!!!

Updated group pic!!

These ladies are great source of encouragement too!! I may not talk to them in person as much since we no longer live in the same state. But thanks to Facebook and texting we stay in touch, share our struggles and accomplishments too!!
Oh and Tonya was at there too but at different times when pics where taken.

                                       She is great example of overcoming her struggles and MAINTAINING her goals!!
 Before I moved I got to workout with her at Gym One.
                                         I learned SO much from her and she is an amazing encouragement to me too!
                                           As you can tell I am social person :)
                                          I like to exercise with friends and eat with them too!
                                          What made the difference in our lives?
                                            Tracking what we ate!!!
                                             Melinda, April, Suzanne and I track with Weight Watchers!
                                            Tonya writes down her daily calorie intake and has for years !

 In order for this too not to be crazy long,
 I am doing it in two parts which I hope to post by the end of the day :)
